Food was nice but they did not have enough staff to provide adequate service.
Hi there Todd, and thanks for taking some time to leave us a little feedback. We will be putting more staff members on and training existing staff members more to ensure this doesn't happen again. We hope you'll come back and give us another go!

Beautiful venue and great food
Hi Lizzie, delighted to hear that you love the venue as much as we do. Come back in soon and try some more of our wonderful dishes, you can't miss the pate, intercostal beef or wood fired full fish in my opinion. Have a lovely day.

The food was phenomenal and the service was top notch. Despite using the 50% special, we were still treated like top customers.

4 different waiters who forgot orders, took 30mins to get a round of beers. we did the 50% off deal but food was underwhelming - esp the flank steak. Service was average until we complained to manager at bill time who offered us a beer in lieu of dessert.

We bought the 50% off deal but the food was still 100% !

Food and drinks were great. One of the waiters spilled red wine all over my back and the only thing they offered was to pay for the dry cleaning of my shirt - I would have expected more of an apology and discounted bill or similar (we did get a side dish $13 free which I didn’t think was sufficient when having to sit with a wet shirt through my whole dinner)

Degustation meal was wonderful and service was best I've experienced in a while. Broccoli and anchovy sauce was amazing, I would come back just for that!

Dined with 50% off for degustation menu which is good value. Otherwise a bit pricey. Would be better if 50 % discount applies to a la carte menu to try out other dished

Great food, great venue and good service. The set menu was great, no weak dishes. Unfortunately our main was forgotten and took a while to come out but we weren't in any rush so didn't ruin our night. Would go back.

We go to Mike's quite often and we are never disappointed. We will be back. It is a happy place for us.
